It appears Kanye West's alleged debt burden may have just been lifted, with the help of wife and fellow celebrity, Kim Kardashian West.
On Monday night, the reality TV personality tweeted that she was "busy cashing (her) 80 million video game check", and transferring $53 million into a joint account.
This comes less than a month after her husband and musician, Kanye West announced that he was allegedly $53 million in debt to his several million Twitter followers.
Following West's debt confession, he went on to ask Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg for a $1 billion investment into his "ideas", and members of the public tried to raise cash for West with a tongue-in-cheek GoFundMe crowdfunding page.
Despite the efforts, no allusion as to whether West's debt has been reduced had been made public, until his wife's tweet circulated late Monday.
It would hardly be surprising that Kardashian West has made some profit from the gaming space recently, following the success of her role-playing video game "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood", which according to gaming research firm SuperData Research, generated some $51 million in revenue within the first four months of its release, back in 2014.
On top of that, Kardashian West released "Kimoji" last December, an app allowing users to use emoji characters based on the reality star's life.
West's debt announcement was made at the time the rapper released his latest studio album, "The Life of Pablo", which he plans "never" to put on sale (in hard format) or on Apple Music. It is currently legally available to those who use premium streaming service, Tidal.
This Monday, West also announced he was thinking about ending his relationship with CDs, and only publishing his music through the streaming format.
Rumors about West's "debt" have been raised in the past, with West reportedly saying around the time of 2015's BET Honors ceremony that he had been some $16 million in debt, after trying to become a fashion entrepreneur with his own clothing line.
Since Kardashian West's financial announcement online, the tweet has been retweeted over 83,000 times, and several Twitter users have concluded that this means the rapper is now free of debt.
Neither Kim Kardashian West nor Kanye West have confirmed whether the $53 million was to fix the rapper's debt.
